The Golf Channel (Orlando) is set to install a new Solid State Logic C100 Digital Broadcast Console to handle audio its slew of golfing shows.
"When we looked for a console to replace our current analog board, we really liked this new offering from Solid State Logic that we saw at NAB, the C100," said Andy Murphy, VP of network operations for The Golf Channel. "The redesign of our production control room is complete and now it is time to focus on upgrading our audio facilities. The C100 will give us the power to convert our analog sources to digital within the board, thereby greatly reducing the need for ancillary equipment. We love the flexibility, options and functionality that the C100 offers. We’re looking forward to it being fully installed and online."
The C100 and C200 are SSL's new digital consoles to address the critical on-air needs of the broadcast industry. The C100 is a small footprint, assignable console, specifically designed for on-air studio applications, such as news and sports, and live-to tape talk and game shows. The transition to digital broadcast is fully addressed by the C100 Digital Broadcast Console, delivering operational efficiency in a cost-effective scalable solution.
Erv Vanags, director of engineering and operations for The Golf Channel, explained, "The control and routing features on the C100 will really help us streamline our production schedule. Many times, we have back-to-back productions that require different setups. The C100’s ability to memorize a particular setup for a show or even for an individual fits our production model to a tee. Our shows are constantly changing in terms of on-air talent, so the speed that the C100 offers for changes is very important."
